Borage

Had a lovely surprise yesterday. Lovely day here so took a stroll around the garden and did a few jobs. I found a Borage plant in flower which I know I hadn't planted. Apparently for the rest of the week it is due to pour with rain. Just wondered if I can preserve the flowers, possibly to have in a Pimms if we get some Summer!! Pity to lose them.

I have blue and white ones and just sprinkle them on salads. I imagine they could be preserved using sugar as in the recipes for crystalised violets etc.

Many thanks for your response Gerry. I didn't know you could get white borage flowers - mine are blue. I'll check out how to crystalise viiolets and go from there. Cheers
